I'm increasingly seeing my religious and my political and my personal views on the welfare state/communality/mutual support as basically the same.

Humans are meant to be helping each other. Everyone for themselves is not good religion, or good politics, or good living in any sense. And in any meaningful sense, it's not good economics. Not if one sees economics as a tool to help make society work, rather than as a god.

Compassion meditation and opposing welfare cuts are all part of the same thing, in that way. All part of realising what Christians would call the Kingdom of God on earth.
